ILIAD NOUN

ild.21 Short of life indeed did my mother Laothoe bear me, daughter of aged Altes of Altes who reigns over the warlike Lelegae and holds steep Pedasus on the river Satnioeis.
ild.22 Should they be still alive and in the hands of the Achaeans, we will ransom them with Gold and Bronze, of which we have store, for the old man Altes endowed his daughter richly; but if they are already dead and in the house of Hades, sorrow will it be to us two who were their parents; albeit the grief of others will be more short lived unless you too perish at the hands of Achilles.

Arise Greece! from thy silent sleep, 2000 years long it is! Forget not, thy ancient culture, beautiful and marvelous it is!
